Bavaria 40E Fly For Sale - NOT AVAILABLE
Updated: Sep 7
The Bavaria E40 Fly is a beatifull yacht from the German builder and was recognized as the “European Boat of the Year” in 2017. Bavaria may be better known for their sailing yachts, but they have a sizable stable of motor yachts.
The influences on this model from its sail-powered siblings are clear. The style and location of the lower helm are one of the more notable features. It’s in the main salon, where you would expect to find the helm on a flybridge boat, but it’s a pedestal helm, located on the centerline of the boat, at the aft of the cabin. The cabin is wrapped with large windows, meaning sightlines out from the helm seat are good, and there’s room on the bench for a couple of passengers to keep the captain company.
The secondary helm is up top, mounted low in front of a wide, double helm seat. It’s complete with its own multifunction display. There’s plenty of additional seating up top for passengers. Access to the flybridge if from a centrally mounted ladder from the aft cockpit. While boat manufacturers produce large glazed boats for ease of maneuvering, engine manufacturers are developing new propulsion systems with smart maneuvering features. Thanks to the flybridge, which offers both an additional socializing area and a 360-degree panoramic view, you have the opportunity to manage your boat from an upper deck. The air draft height of these boats are longer than the sedan type boats. Although they hold more wind compared to other boats during cruising and maneuvering, the boat is very easy to steer and maneuver thanks to the bow and stern propellers included in the inventory. It would not be wrong to say that most users prefer the Flybridge, which has an excellent viewing angle, even in stormy and rainy weather, especially during maneuvering.
The aft cockpit is raised, owing to the large aft cabin beneath. Seating wraps around the entire cockpit, save for the entry to the main cabin and an opening center aft that leads to the transom. The swim platform lowers from the transom when it’s in use. The boat’s swim platform was upgraded to a fixed and bigger platform by the previous owner. Boarding the E40Fly while the swim platform is simple and very easy. There are shallow steps molded into the corners of the transom and a teak ladder that can be positioned over the gunnels on either side to facilitate boarding. While the extended platform offers a pleasant use, it also allows you to carry your dighy when you need it onboard.
The main cabin in the V-berth is spacious with plenty of storage. There are porthole windows on either side that let in natural light and can also open for fresh air. The main head is a split design, with a separate shower compartment opposite the toilet and sink. The aft cabins iare equally spacious and has extra headroom, thanks to the design of the raised cockpit area above. It’s also outfitted with opening portholes for light and air. There’s a second wet head adjacent to the starboard aft cabin.
There are also two-cabin versions of the Bavaria E40 Fly. Our yacht was selected as an option with three cabins at the order stage. The Bavaria E40 Fly will comfortably sleep three couples for an extended cruise with the three-cabin floorplan.
Beside the aft cabins, you’ll find the access door to the engine compartment which houses the E40 Fly’s 325-hp Volvo Penta D4-300 diesel engine. The single-engine can push the E40Fly along at a top speed of about 15 knots and holds a steady cruise at about 10 knots. It’s also quite happy to chug along for endless hours at displacement speed, which gives this boat an 800-plus mile range.
The Bavaria E40Fly isn’t a speedboat. Everything about this design is targeted toward long-distance, coastal cruising.
Bavaria has blended several popular sailing yacht features into its new motor yacht and the result is an efficient, well-equipped, award-winning design sure to capture attention on this side of the pond.
